God bless America

I agree about the Martin guitar supremacy in acoustics. However, Martin relies in his reputation to charge and profit beyond imagination.

Consider the pricing and quality wood used by Godin --Solid Wood Series-- Why Martin, using less appealing woods, such as sapele, laminate stratabond necks, etc., cannot do the same and sell their guitars with some kind or rationality, dignity and respect.

After all Martin has made billions of dollars selling guitars, they have had already their moment to make billions profit. They maybe, maybe not, using the same suppliers to buy woods; just like Godin and the others manufacturers and luthiers. Conversely, Martin culture and reputation --created by rich artist that can buy their guitars with the money earned from you and I, allows the company to behave just like the banks and the people who is managing the national economy.
